2011 ~ looking back

2011 has certainly been a busy old year for us here in our little family!

There has been so much crammed into this past year, and I thought that it would be fun to look back over the Button Tree Crafts archives and relive some of the lovely memories that 2011 has created ~

January 2011 ~ I loved this beautiful pink hyacinth which brightened up my days and my kitchen::

February 2011 ~ Banana and chocolate muffins, made from my new Nigella recipe book ~ very yummy they were too!

March 2011 ~ Brightly coloured Rico creative cotton and a lovely new needlepoint kit to keep me busy::

May 2011 ~ We revisited Disneyland in Paris and had an absolutely wonderful time::

May 2011 ~ We also had a lovely day in Paris and saw all the famous sights::

June 2011 ~ After a very long wait, we finally sold our little house and moved back to my childhood hometown near the seaside::

July 2011 ~ we had some lovely summery days and spent lots of time exploring and rediscovering our wonderful new surroundings::

September 2011 ~ I finally finished my colourful Rico stripey peg bag::

October 2011 ~ We found this fabulous Halloween decoration in a little village just along the coast::

November 2011 ~ The autumn weather was glorious and I had some lovely autumny walks amongst all the crisp piles of leaves::

December 2011 ~ I made a start on a cozy blue Granny Striped blanket for my boy::

I had such fun looking back over my little blog ~ I have never done a looking back post before and it was really lovely reliving the bits that made 2011 such a special year for me and my family. I love the fact that blogging allows me to keep all these special memories and that they are there for my children to look back on when they are older. Thank you all so much for sharing this little journey back in time with me ~ I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year when it comes ~ and I'll hopefully see you all next year :O)xx

Lovely post, I don't think I'd have the patience to look back over my year - it's been quite a frustrating one with hubby's ongoing long term sick, bless him.

Hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you and your family and happy and healthy 2012. xx

A Happy New Year to you and your family Jackie, not long to go now!

I found my own rummage through the year's photographs to be immensely satisfying (even if it did take a while!). I enjoyed yours too.
